Arizona Truck Laws
Highways in Arizona, whether busy interstates such as I-8, I-17, or I-40 or smaller two-lane highways that take commercial vehicles to Tucson, Phoenix and other major cities, are home to thousands of truck accidents every year. More than 2,400 fatal and non-fatal truck accidents occur on Arizona’s roads annually, leaving thousands of people injured or coping with the loss of a loved one. If you or a family member has been injured in a truck accident, make sure you team with an attorney who has devoted his professional career to protecting the rights of truck accident victims, and to holding trucking companies and truck drivers accountable for their negligent actions.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (Title 49, Parts 350-399) govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic.
There are some situations where a tractor-trailer or other commercial motor vehicle is involved in only intrastate travel. For example, an appliance store in Phoenix may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety has adopted Title 49, Parts 382, 383, 384, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, and 399 of the federal regulations.
